Thanks for the creative proposals. Right after I posted this my wife walked in and had me try to purposely hiccup into her hand. Of course I couldn't do it and it worked to get rid of them. They haven't came back yet. But they have gone away and came back twice this week already. I don't understand it.

Has anybody tried getting rid of warts by rubbing a bean on the wart and planting it in the drip area directly underneath your roof? My grandmother did that to a wart that I had on my knee when I was younger and damned if it didn't go away. I have also heard that you can rub a string on the wart, tie a knot in the string, burry it in the yard and when the string rots the wart goes away. Havent tried that one.


I had a wart on my thumb when I was ten.

I bit it off.

It came back again.

Bit it off again.

Has not come back.

I think I scared it away.

I was out at a bar with some friends a while back and my buddy got the hiccups. We all started giving him different hiccup cures but he said "NO! When I get the hiccups I decide that I don't want them anymore, and I stop having them." And sure enough, they stopped.

I saw him a few days later and told him that I'd used his hiccup cure with success, and he had no idea what I was talking about since apparently he was wasted and had made it up on the spot.

I still use that cure to this day with success.

Csulli, Jewbacca,

just want you guys to know you may have saved lives tonight.

After about ten hours of hiccups today, increasing pain and these bastards showing up two/three at a time, I read this thread, did the holding breath water sipping ONCE.

Hiccups gone.

BAM.

If either of your necks are ever in my woods I owe you a beer or something.

I cure my hiccup bouts by simply drinking a glass of water while holding my breath and not allowing any air into the esophagus between swallows. There's a point where swallowing will seem impossible, and at that point is where the effectiveness comes in.

It's also a cure for persistent respiration and chronic boners.
